PDO Thread Lift Treatment
Thread Lift Treatment In London
This revolutionary treatment is used to address loose, saggy skin around the neck, crow’s feet lines and frown lines. It produces an excellent eyebrow lift, along with lifting and tightening the jawline.
Fine Thread Lifting (FTL) is a popular technique making use of PDO (polydioxanone) biodegradable threads to combine the benefits of the permanent thread lift technique with that of superficial contour threads to minimise the side effects of older techniques.
WHAT DOES PDO THREAD LIFT TREATMENT DO?
Fine thread therapy combines traditional thread lift principles of inflammatory response and new collagen formation of western medicine with principles of needle rotation and mechano-transduction of acupuncture.
The fine threads used are made of PDO and are a lot finer than cog threads at 0.05-0.4mm in diameter. The threads are placed in the subcutaneous layer, activating a natural wound healing effect and resulting in:
- Increased collagen formation
- Tissue adhesion
- Increased anchoring around the PDO threads
- Increase in fat breakdown
- Decrease in cellulite
- Tighter, lifted skin
- Reduced pore size
- Reduction of fat in the double chin and neck areas
Performed under local anaesthetic, the procedure takes between 45 minutes for one area to 90 minutes for the full face. To minimise the risk of bruising, the threads are positioned by using a blunt cannula. For a full-face procedure, you can expect some discomfort and swelling; we advise you to take 5 days away from social engagements. Whilst you will be able to drive yourself home, it’s preferable to have someone to drive you instead. If you’re having a local procedure, the downtime is minimal.
5 COG FACELIFT
This revolutionary technique combines strong, anchoring threads for lifting the skin, along with fine superficial contouring threads for surface rejuvenation.
We strategically place five long cog threads in the deep layers of the skin of the cheek in order to lift:
- The jowls
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
We can also use cog threads to lift the neck, eyebrows and forehead. The end result is excellently efficient lifting and tightening of the skin, redefining facial contours and inducing collagen production.
The threads will completely biodegrade between 6-8 months, with the effects lasting between 2-3 years. You’ll have a thorough consultation, assessing your suitability to the procedure and a detailed explanation of what to expect from the procedure. All thread lift treatments are carried out by experienced dermatological surgeons.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
As well as using specifically designed fine contour threads for reducing puffiness and fine lines around the eyes, FTL can be used on: The nasolabial folds, Marionette lines, jowls and the neck
A full medical history will be taken at the time of assessment. Patients who have the following should not have this treatment:
- Serious heart problems
- Auto-immune conditions
- Kidney disorders
- Bleeding disorders
You will see an improvement immediately in the treated areas. This will improve even further over the next 3-4 months as new collagen settles between the threads, contributing to increased lifting and tightening of the skin.
Studies have shown that the results from FTL last between 2 and 3 years, however this depends on the quality of the skin, the number of threads used, the degree of sagging and the patient’s age at the time of treatment.
Having occasional additional thread treatments will help you to maintain good results.
